AFTERLIFE is a explosive and intimate love story told through dance and electronic music.
Based on real events, AFTERLIFE is inspired by the love stories of Lillian’s and Tom’s parents, both of which ended tragically when their fathers died unexpectedly. AFTERLIFE is about the spark that connects two equals, about stamina, risk and a journey that ends in an instant.
What do we feel in a moment of complete disorientation?
AFTERLIFE places these emotions in the context of modern club culture.
In a time of maximum vulnerability the club is a place to release emotion, grieve without guilt and feel the pulse of life continuing. With a unique format that goes beyond stage performance, audiences are immersed fully and brought together in a dance performance that begins and ends at the club.
AFTERLIFE ends with an AFTERPARTY.
AFTERLIFE It is the first production of SNOW, founded in 2020 in Basel by Choreographer Lillian Stillwell and Director Tom Ryser for the development and performance of their independent productions.
Premiere: March 2021, Basel at a super exciting new location we’re not allowed to talk about yet…Stay tuned!

The Dj Duo Schwifi is comprised of two women from Basel, Ada Fischer and Sophia Schwager, who have been active in the Basel music and culture scene for over three years. Their DJ sets move within a broad spectrum of electronic music styles, especially those with a great beat and with a lot of bass. Not only a common passion for music but also a passion for movement connects the two. They met over 10 years ago when they toured through Switzerland together with a youth circus. With AFTERLIFE they are able to connect these two passions in a new context. Their DJ sets can be heard regularly at Basel venues such as Humbug, Kaserne or smaller locations like Nebel or 1. Stock.
